Yoko Ono joins McCartneys for fashion show

Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono joined Stella McCartney today at a special fashion show.

Sir Paul’s daughter Stella unveiled her latest autumn and winter fashion range in the show at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) in Liverpool.

George Harrison’s widow Olivia Harrison and Coleen McLoughlin were also at the event.

Guests were welcomed with glasses of champagne and badges saying “Stella” with a shape of a heart and the words “L’Pool” below.

The show also included singing and dancers.

Describing the collection on show at the event, Ms McCartney said: “Naturally sexy, naturally confident and modern.”

Speaking about staging a fashion show in Liverpool and visiting the city, Ms McCartney, whose father is lead patron of LIPA, said: “It’s great. We just thought it would be really good fun to come and do it and good to work with LIPA.

“I’m very proud of my family involvement with LIPA.”

When asked how she felt while talking to fans, she said: “I feel great thank you.”

There were 380 seats available for the fashion show with tickets ranging from £100 to £500.

On the tickets it stated that all proceeds from the event would go towards LIPA.

LIPA provides education and training for people who want careers in the arts and entertainment industry.

Tonight Sir Paul will take to the stage in Liverpool to mark the city’s Capital of Culture Year.

The 65-year-old will headline a special show, called Liverpool Sound, staged at Liverpool Football Club’s Anfield Stadium.

The ex-Beatle will be joined on the bill by Liverpool group The Zutons, the Kaiser Chiefs and Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl at the sell-out 45,000-seat event.
